Are you ready for the holidays? Flowers and plants always provide a festive atmosphere and turn even the most mundane setting into a real party table. With just a few quick and easy ideas, you can welcome your guests in style!
Keep it simple
A good set of plates and attractive cutlery will take you a long way. With napkins, a tablecloth, and candles, you can apply some colour and determine your style. You can go on using the same basic elements and let the decoration yield some variety. And so, it’s better to invest in charming wine glasses or exquisite cutlery than in eye-catching napkins.
Christmas doesn’t have to be synonymous with a red and green pine needle scene. On the contrary, other colours also look good in winter and give your table that dash of originality. Choose some warm shades to keep the cold out. You can use less typical colours all year round!
Green on the table always makes for an attractive decor. Think of more than just cut flowers. Small house plants, spice jars, and some twigs from the garden are more durable solutions which can still give you pleasure later.
‘Choose some warm shades to keep the cold out.’
A plant like the ‘Gentse azalea’ gives you the best of two worlds: deep green leaves and vivid flower colours. You can find them in lots of different colours, so you can gear them perfectly to suit your taste in colour. After the party, you simply give them a spot in your interior! The azalea is a really easy house plant which yields extra colour and atmosphere with little trouble. Azaleas look their best between September and May, so they love the winter!
Do you want to indulge your guests that little bit extra?
Think of the details! You don’t really need name cards for friends and relatives, but they do provide some topic of conversation and an elegant touch. Menu cards on the table can enhance your layout and arouse your guests. Small highlights are also fun to give away to your visitors afterwards. Azaleas are available in small sizes. You can easily put them next to each plate and they make a perfect memento of a lovely evening!
